Now that Arcadia London has firmly established itself as my favorite porter, I’ve been going back and checking out past raves. This one is very good - bold with the dark malts and enough hops and toasted edges to keep it honest. Great stuff!

Great aftertaste. It is a dark beer that doesn’t taste too dark. An interesting blend of ingredients. Perhaps the best beer ohio has to offer.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2002
Dark color, tan head that never completely leaves. Roasted aroma. Perfect balance of roasted chocolate, coffee and hops. The carbonization is just right too. Finish is like dark chocolate.

Ducati (37) - Windsor, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2002
A nice porter. It has a decent amount of roasted malt and Munich malt character. A smoothing balance of hops but, it lacks the omph in body and overall flavor to carry the robust name. All that said I like it.

My favorite beer. Smooth, dark, roasty....recommend to anyone who likes this particular style of beer.

Slight maltiness soon overwhelmed by the hops. Somewhat wet cardboard. Spend your money in Britian.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2002
dark as a mink with just a little orange along the edge. head can be excited somewhat by a vigorous swirl of the glass, but then relaxes to the point of near baldness. in a taste test with rogue’s mocha porter this was the less assertive in aroma, but alone it seems gorgeous and about all i’d ask from a porter. it has some aromatic semblances to black burley pipe tobacco, some dates, and italian roast coffee. creamy texture spreads an even caress of sweetness and hoppy bitterness across the palate, just what i’d do if i were a robust porter. then gordon lightfoot would write a song about me too.

These flavers didnt sit right with me. But Im sure others will like it. Cant see myself buying any more of these.

Excellent! A must try - beautifully dark, great taste.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2003 Greater than the sum of its parts. This is my introduction to the Great Lakes line, and I don't know if they can top this. Hints of coffee and somewhat dry, consistently good flavor throughout.
